So. I’m frustrated. I’ve been applying for jobs for an entire year now and I’m reaching a point where it’s difficult to find agencies that I haven’t yet applied with. I’ve interviewed with several different agencies however they’ve all ended with the rejection email. Just so I don’t sound totally whiny, I know my situation could be worse. I know the economy is tough, I know I could be unemployed, and I know I could be a lot less educated and experienced. There is a job, if not countless jobs, that I would be amazing at. That being said, I am still frustrated, feeling rejected, and questioning my career intentions. I won’t list everywhere I’ve applied because I’m almost embarrassed of how many applications I’ve sent out and to be honest I don’t even entirely remember (I’ll make another post on what exactly I want to do with my life).
I don’t like admitting defeat. I’m young, well educated, talented, friendly, confident and experienced. I interview well. However, this process is actually starting to get to me. I can’t wait for six months from now when I can laugh at this entry when I’m employed and happy and saving the world (although I said that six months ago, and six months before that).
What’s my next step? The same steps just likely a bit more vigorously. I’ve found my second wind and I’m just going to have to make it happen for myself.
